Boots Haul - I accidentally spent some money!

Thursday, October 09, 2014

Before I went on holiday I was looking for a makeup base to take as I knew my normal foundation would be too thick and I didn't want to go completely free of a base at least until 4 days in.  

I admit I'm rubbish with makeup. I don't really know what does what. I slap it on and hope for the best. 

Boots had a 3 for 2 deal on so I thought i'd take advantage. 

Over the past year I've really been into primers and do think they help my make up last better. I picked up the Lumi Magique from L'Oreal. 

I haven't used this out in the real world yet but I don't think I like it. It has a bit of sparkle (the illuminating bit?) 

It seems to go on really white. I'm a bit afraid of it. Has anyone used it? 

I'm planning on using it as my base for halloween under my white facepaint. 

I don't know the difference beyween a BB and CC cream and a tinted moisturiser. I'm sure they all have some amazing features and i'm missing out but I got sucked in buy this Nude Magique BB Cream When I swatched it in store, It really did seem to vanish but now i've got it home it seems a bit, bitty and patchy.

It comes out purple and then blends to skin tone. I haven't used this out of the house as yet, I love the idea of it and it does seem really light. 

I think i need to try it with some powder and other make up. I did pick up a slightly darker tone than I would normally as I knew I was going away. 

My Final 3 for 2 Item is the Nude Magique CC cream in the green tone. I almost didn't get this but I'm glad I did as it's my favourite of the things I bought.

 I decided it would be good for holiday as even if I didn't burn my face (I didn't) It'd tone down any redness from heat and it does.

It doesn't make me look like a ghost on photo's and it goes on really nicely and doesn't seem patchy like I think the BB cream does.

My final purchase was a Maybeline Baby lips in a bright pink. I already have a clear one that I really like and you can never go wrong with a bit of hot pink.

I didn't really use this and It'll probably sit in the bottom of my makeup bag but I love the idea of it. I do wish it had SPF in it. I think if it had I would have used it during the day.

What do you think? Have you tried any of these products?
